馃槵 I got an electrocardiogram and they told me I had a heart attack 馃挃! How can that be? I never had chest pain.

This situation is a common reason for consultation. Here we must differentiate between two very different typical cases:

馃敼 Misinterpreted or poorly performed electrocardiogram. Experience in reading an electrocardiogram is essential, as it shows subtle electrical signs that can indicate one thing or another. If you are a young, healthy person without risk factors and never had chest pain, it's likely to be a misinterpretation. Don't worry, seek a second opinion from an expert cardiologist to clarify these doubts.

馃敻 True silent heart attack. Silent heart attacks do exist and account for around 20% of cases of acute myocardial infarction. They are generally small and occur in diabetic or elderly patients. There are usually risk factors present, and this case, very different from the previous one, requires a comprehensive evaluation of cardiovascular risk.

馃挕 It's important to consult your cardiologist for a detailed clinical evaluation馃┖ and to ensure a correct interpretation of the performed studies.
